It was coming to the end of a £24m redevelopment programme and a capital appeal, Building for the future, was being planned for the final £1m funding required.

Brother, in conjunction with the International Fundraising Consultancy, was asked to develop this case for support and, in addition, a number of supplementary appeal materials for gala events and auctions.

The appeal was hugely successful and the Museum was reopened by Her Majesty, The Queen the following year.
